    Hey guys, I'm new to the forums in the last month or so. I had a 97 B4 sedan that I drove for 9 years and recently sold. About a month ago, I bought an 02 B5 Wagon. The only thing that I wasn't happy with was the floaty stock suspension. I bought a used Koni and H&R setup from another member...

    Has anyone ever thought of adjusting the firmness of the Koni shocks differently in the rear versus the front? I was wondering how the driving characteristics such as accelleration, braking, and cornering would be if the rear was at a stiffer setting than the fronts. Would it screw up anything?

    So I just received my Koni Sport Adjustables a few weeks ago and haven't had a chance to put them on my 2001 4Motion. Yesterday I made the mistake of dropping by a local VW dealer to take them up on the offer to test drive a W8. I came away from the drive impressed with the car and the dealer...

    I'm planning to replace my OEM shocks with Koni sport adjustables to correct the wallowing, floating, diving etc. I am not doing any other suspension mods at this time, but might someday down the road. I have read here that Bilstein shocks for OEM springs and shorter springs are different (HD...
